Tell Me More...

Portara is divided into several different layers.  The Roll Manager controls  continuation data allowing for full flexibility of roll settings.  The Compression Manager formats and compresses data to multiple timeframes and where timestamp options can be set. The Update Manager keeps your databases current and can be fully automated even from the command line. The Session Manager is used to clip away any unwanted data from your streams.  Use Data Tools, for statistical robustness testing and data randomization. An advanced Charting Suite is included as standard.
